Smarttrack rudder vertical adjustment kit allows vertical adjustment for precise placement of your SmartTrack toe controls.
I purchased this along with a SmartTrack rudder kit for a Perception Carolina 14.5 kayak. A representative from Austin Canoe & Kayak recommended it. I installed the toe controls without the adjustment plate and they were too high and very uncomfortable. Then I used the adjustment plate and put the toe controls on the lowest setting, and they were just the right height and comfortable. All this package contains is two pieces of rigid plastic with hole drilled in them and four stainless steel bolts and nuts. I'm sure someone on a tight budget could make something cheaper, but this is light, sturdy, and installed in the Carolina in a couple of minutes. Well worth the money to me.
This will not work with Wilderness Systems kayaks. Do not buy this on-line unless you have seen it in the store or you will likely be unhappy.
This will work with sit-on-top kayaks, but you will have to use the standard foot rail that comes with the kayak as a spacer.
These are a bit pricey for what they are... but if you need them, nothing else will do. I ordered them along with a SmartTrack pedal kit "just in case", but it turned out I didn't need them after all. My kayak had non-standard (i.e. 14.5") pedal mount spacing, so I had to drill new holes anyway. I was able to mount the SmartTracks directly to the hull. Even if I wanted to use the vertical adjustment kit with the original mounting positions I couldn't have done so, they were spaced too far apart. tanstaafl.
Good support easy to install
